| He's pretty smart for a mutt.
Shiro is a wolfdog who lived in the Ryube forest with Kinnison. Shiro, a mutt combination of both wolf and dog, was said to be highly intelligent and able to distinguish between good and evil. Kinnison and Shiro had been together for a long time and Kinnison seemed able to understand the meaning of the noises that Shiro made.
During the early stages of the Dunan Unification War, Kinnison and Shiro encountered the hero in the forest after the hero had rescued a baby bird; sensing a respect for nature from him and dismayed at the damage the advancing Highland Army were causing, Shiro and Kinnison agreed to join the New State Army.
Shiro struggled with living at the New State Army Headquarters at first, but gradually came to like the castle. He even gave Gengen rides on his back. Shiro's speed and power made him a vicious enemy for the Highland Army to encounter throughout the war.
Following the Dunan Unification War, Shiro returned to Ryube Forest with Kinnison, always by the side of his master.
